Sofia Vergara’s Diet and Workout Routine

After recently I posted a pic of Kim Kardashian on my Instagram, a lot of you asked me to write more about celebs who are endomorph body type. So I listened and decided to write about the gorgeous Sofia Vergara.

This woman has accomplished so much in her life as an actor, producer, and model. She’s inspiring, funny, and she works hard. On top of all that, she’s beautiful and has a gorgeous figure!

Here’s how she keeps her body healthy and in great shape:

SOFIA VERGARA’S DIET

DIET AND CHRONIC ILLNESS

SOFIA AND HYPOTHYROIDISM

When Sofia was just 28 years old, she developed thyroid cancer and ended up having to have her thyroid removed.

Now, she deals with hypothyroidism, a condition in which you don’t receive enough thyroid hormone in your blood. Symptoms of this illness can include:

  • Weight gain
  • Dry skin
  • Problems with metabolism
  • Cold sensitivity
  • Fatigue

Sofia is now a spokeswoman for the campaign “Follow the Script,”, which educates people about hypothyroidism. I’ve struggled with an underactive thyroid for years. I know how badly it has affected me and how long it took to get the right diagnosis and treatment.

Since posting about my experience with underactive thyroid on my social media and blog, I’ve also had comments from SO many women who have the same issue. That’s why I’m extremely proud of Sofia for spreading awareness about hypothyroidism.

Although Sofia recognizes that maintaining a healthy and good-looking body is important for her job, she also knows that staying fit is important for her entire wellbeing. Her experience with cancer has helped her to not worry about the small stuff. Instead, she wants to focus on the big picture of her health and happiness.

EATING WELL MOST OF THE TIME

For Sophia, maintaining a healthy diet is really important for her overall health and wellbeing, especially because of her hypothyroidism.

This means that Sofia follows a disciplined, but not an overly strict, diet. Her trainer, Gunnar Peterson, recommends that she eats lots of vegetables and lean protein. She tries to eat really healthy over week, and she lets herself relax a little bit more during the weekend.

Although Sofia does have a sweet tooth (her favourite treat is cake!), she tries to eat healthy most of the time. She loves eating fish, fresh salads, and Middle Eastern food.

If she spends a couple of weeks on holiday indulging in more junk food and alcohol than normal, she likes to spend a month eating extra clean to help her body recover.

PREPARING FOR THE RED CARPET

During awards seasons, Sofia avoids carbs, especially late at night. She tries to cut out things like bread, rice, oatmeal, and potatoes, as well as salty foods.

Salty foods help your body retain water, which can make you look bloated and puffy.

SOFIA’S BODY TYPE

Sofia is endomorph body type! This means that she’S naturally curvier (love!), and she can probably gain muscle and fat pretty quickly. Endomorphs typically have a lot of strength and endurance, but it can be hard for them to lose weight.

I always suggest that endomorphs keep their carbohydrate content relatively low, which is what Sofia seems to do too. Instead, she eats a lot of protein, which is great for endomorphs.

Sofia has managed to keep her curvy body looking slim and toned, and her healthy diet plays a big role in that. She obviously knows how to eat for her body type and it shows! :)

WHAT SOFIA VERGARA EATS IN A DAY

BREAKFAST

For breakfast, Sofia likes to make homemade muesli. She mixes it with Greek yogurt, oats, chia seeds, nuts, and blueberries. Yum!

LUNCH

For lunch, Sofia loves a good salad with some fish as protein to top it off.

DINNER

If Sofia is going out for dinner, she loves to opt for a lighter meal like sushi or Middle Eastern food. However, Sofia isn’t afraid to have the occasional pizza, bowl of pasta, or steak either!

Sofia’s favourite spot for dinner is LA’s Soho House. There, she might order the bowl of Ahi tuna poke, avocado, cucumber, fresno, and brown jasmine rice.

SNACKS

On Instagram, Sofia has shared she likes to eat fruit with a light pastry and a cup of tea as a mid-day snack.

SOFIA VERGARA’S WORKOUT ROUTINE

SHE WORKS OUT A LOT

Sofia works out with two trainers: Jennifer Yates, founder of LA’s Studio Metamorphosis, and Gunnar Peterson, who has also trained Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner. Sofia says that having a trainer helps her stay much more motivated, passionate, and focused.

According to Jennifer, Sofia will hit the gym at least five times a week if her work schedule allows it. Each time she goes, she tries to get in at least 50 minutes to an hour of work.

This might make it seem like she LOVES to work out, but Sofia actually says it is torture for her. She loves to try to think of excuses to avoid going to the gym, but she’s always glad when she’s done!

SHE DOESN’T LOVE RUNNING

Sofia isn’t a big fan of running. She prefers to get her cardio in with a quick 15 minutes on the bike or by walking on the treadmill with an incline of six to eight percent.

Sofia likes having a bit more muscle in her lower body and walking on an incline is great for building muscle in your quads and booty! But if you don’t want to build your leg muscles, I would recommend walking on a flat surface instead. :)

Sofia likes to make sure that her cardio makes her slightly out of breath, but she doesn’t want to go fast enough to break into a jog.

FOCUSING ON PROPORTIONS

Wither Gunnar, Sofia really tries to focus on emphasizing her small waistline and hourglass shape. They focus on making sure her butt looks perfectly round and her thighs are shapely through a variety of squats, hip thrusts, lunges, and so on.

To balance this out, they’ll also do some shoulder work. Here are some of the moves that they do:

  • Dumbbell split squats
  • Lateral raises
  • Slingshots

Sofia will also go to some Pilates classes. There, she focuses on keeping her body looking lean and toned without sacrificing her curves.

SAMPLE WORKOUT

Jennifer Yates shared this sample workout with Sofia’s favourite exercises.

You’ll need gliding discs (hand towels will also work!), a light dumbbell, and a resistance band.

  • Elevator Lunge: Stand in a lunge position. Using a gliding disc, slide one leg into standing position. Then, slide back into the lunge. Continue this on one side for two minutes. Then, switch to the next slide.
  • Dumbell wall sit: Squat against a wall with a dumbbell in your hand. Hold for 60 seconds. Then, put the dumbbell down and squat for another minute.
  • Teaser with sliding disc: Get into plank position. Place a disc under both feet. Lift your hips and slide your feet to one side for four counts. Slide back for four counts. Do this on one side for one minute, then repeat.
  • Tailbone angel: Sit on the floor and hold one side of your resistance band in each hand. Sit up tall, then lean back and bring your knees toward your chest. You should be balancing on your tailbone. Spread your arms out to the side while lifting your legs out straight. Count to four and then release. Repeat this for one minute.
  • Side leg sweep: Get on your hands and knees. Lift your left leg up and out to the side. Then, bring your left leg back to hip height directly behind you for four counts. Then, move it back to the left again for four counts. Repeat this for two minutes. Switch sides and repeat.
  • Cheerleader arm circle: Kneel on the floor and hold your resistance band in both hands. Hold the band at chest height in front of you with your palms facing down. Then, bring your arms up, so that your biceps are close to your ears. Rotate your arms so that your palms are facing out. Then, extend your arms out to your side. Circle your arms back to the starting position and repeat.

Do this routine at least twice through for a 30-minute workout.

However, if you bulk up easily in your lower body (some female body types do) and that’s something you’d don’t want, I would recommend avoiding exercises that heavily target your quads (squats, lunges, etc.)

A HAPPY LIFE

Learning more about Sofia’s health journey has made me admire her even more. I love the way she prioritizes her well-being. She eats well (and makes sure to enjoy her food too!), and she also exercises because she knows it is good for her.

Over the years, Sofia has figured out how to do what works for her body, her interests, and her schedule. She does what is best for her health, and I admire that!

Love,
